Happy Stay-cation!

I hope y’all had as wonderful a 4th-of-July weekend as we did!  The fireworks were so cool with the crescent moon as a backdrop.  (!)

One of the projects that we worked on over the weekend was painting the high portion of our den.  Boy, that Little Giant ladder sure came in handy.  And, yay, we finished it! 
(Thank heavens for Mr. Man and his long arms.)

Here are the before and after photos:
After and before.
(The new color is the darker taupe on the left.)

(I had already painted the walls.
Now we were painting up to the beams.)


Mr. Man stopped for some lunch
and had a lot of help eating it.

It always amazes me how a different wall color (and especially Value) can change things so much.  I just love being a Taupe girl!  J

Well… back to the real world.
I hope you have a great week!

  1. What a beautiful home! Love the kitties perching near the food!

    I am a taupe girl, too. I was just sitting in my living room this morning thinking it was time to paint again, dreaming of the perfect taupe and imagining some new accent colors. I walked away from blue back in the 80's during the era of 'country blue' but I'm thinking of some blue to go with my taupe.

    Thanks for the inspiration. . .
